COACH OF THE YEAR: Jason Thomas, Burr and Burton (Manchester)

A former assistant coach at UNH with Chip Kelly, Thomas has brought the up-tempo game to the high school ranks and the result was a perfect 11-0 season and a Division II state title this fall. Burr and Burton averaged a ridiculous 47 points per game on the year to claim its first state title since 1947.


OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Carson Leary, Otter Valley Union (Brandon)

A converted running back, Leary was a lethal rusher from the QB position this fall. He ran for 1,729 yards (13.9 per carry) and scored 29 touchdowns. He piled up 421 yards and five scores in the state title game alone. Leary added 828 yards through the air and 13 more TDs to help Otter Valley claim the Division III state championship.
